There are literally hundreds of diets and diet books in the world today. Most of these diet books or almost all diets have their roots in the American or the Industrial way of eating and are heavily influenced by the rising obesity in the west. All diets promise you something special. Where one diet is low carb the other is low in fat, where a diet book promises you a loss of kilo a day the other promises teaches you how to eat as per your blood type, yet there are some which detox you to weight loss and other which tells you to stay hungry for an extended period of time in the name of intermittent fasting. There are literally so many diets out there that if you follow a diet pattern for a few weeks you will have a new one to follow for the rest of your life.
But there is an issue here, THERE IS NOTHING KNOWN AS DIETING. The word dieting has somehow been associated with starvation. Whenever we hear of diet what a layman perceives it to be is another low-calorie diet in which he/she would have to give away all their favorite foods and will be constantly bothered by rising hunger and cravings. But that is far from the truth and you may be enjoying all your favorite foods and still reach your weight goals. Of course, some amount of moderation and control will be required in the way you eat but that in no way means starvation and deprivation.
While listening to a talk by Dr. John Berardi, I couldn’t stop wondering at the statements he emphasized, during the course of his talk. He said that all diets in the world will work for somebody out there. he added that even if he starts saying stupid statements like “eating grass makes you lose weight” there would be a large section of people who would go to the lawn and start plucking grass and eat it too. What was glaring was that out of the people who are eating grass some of them will lose weight. And that is exactly what happens on almost all the diets in the world. you would find a section of people promoting a type of diet who have lost weight on it.
Every individual is different in a number of ways. The same program may work for someone and may not have any effect on the other person. However, almost all diets don’t work at all and even if they do there are certain reasons common to all why they work and why they will keep on working on some people.
After understanding the logic behind why someone will lose weight with any type of diet you need to understand the facts behind healthy and clean eating and the reasons to consume adequate calories not only to maintain healthy bodily functions but also to reduce cravings and rule out any nutritional deficiencies in the body.
